Based on his singing talent and all the years he had honed his craft in the various school and church music groups, he was granted a full-scholarship to David Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. Marty is married and has 2 daughters and enjoys playing Golf as often as he can.
“You want to feel with each album project when you sit back and listen to it that you can say, ‘I like where we have come from, but I love where we are going.’ We keep it fresh by trying new things and going new places. As long as we’re doing that, I’ll stay with it.”
